I love imitation crabmeat with lemon juice and butter. Is this healthy?

Imitation crabmeat and lemon juice are fine. A 2-1/2-ounce portion of imitation crabmeat has 40 calories (0 from fat), but watch your butter consumption. One teaspoon of butter has 45 calories, and is a source of saturated fat. Use a soft tub margarine, and avoid fats that aren't heart healthy — stay away from products that use hydrogenated as the first ingredient.
